Bill Maher: Be More Cynical is not so much of a laugh fest as most comedy specials, but more of a tell it like it is about the real ways of life and society. Maher pokes fun at the usual politics, religion, health issues and other topics such as advertising and word of mouth. Maher tells us that US. Senators make to much money off of tobacco products to completely outlaw it's use, plus most health problems are due to stress, food, depression, and environment not tobacco and alcohol use the government simply uses that as a scapegoat to make money. Maher sees religion as a fairy tale and not believable, Maher compares the Adam and Eve story of eating the poisonous fruit from the tree to Snow White when she eats the rotten apple from a tree. This is a good comedy special if you like to hear the real truth about things and overlook the hype and hoopla they present please learn to be more cynical. A final word don't believe everything just because you hear it.
